Lindsey Graham: 'Liberals Would Kill Themselves' If Trump Wins Nobel Peace Prize

North Korea promises to close nuke test site in May – South

Thanks to his vision and persistent peace efforts, South Korean President Moon Jae-in succeeded in convincing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who was demonised all these years for reckless behaviour, to a dialogue. Initially, North Korea served as an important "buffer state" between the communist China and Russia to the north and the democratic and capitalist countries of South Korea, Japan - and their ally, the United States.

Trump is expected to meet with Kim in weeks, and said in an interview on Thursday that he was considering five locations for his summit with the North Korean leader, although he has said multiple times that the talks may not happen.

The moves come after Friday's historic summit at which South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the North's leader Kim Jong Un agreed to end hostilities. The press coverage has been relentless. Last week, Kim said he would shut down his nuclear test site and halt missile testing as North Korea turns its attention to growing its economy. But none of these steps has cost any of the parties anything substantial.

But Moon says Trump should be rewarded for the meeting's success, and others seem to agree.

Adding to the potential embarrassment, Kim himself is a pilot with a known love of flying.

As for North Korea living in existential fear of an American invasion? If they can manage it, they will have left a great legacy to the world. Trump's war threats last year scared the South Koreans so much that the Southern president felt compelled to say publicly that the US may not attack North Korea without South Korea's permission.

President Moon, meanwhile, has seen his approval rating rise to 70%, its highest since mid-January, the research agency said.

Everyone has now returned safely home, but the near euphoria is still palpable. It's easy to roll one's eyes at events in the truce village of Panmunjom; harder to give peace a chance. This is an indication of the North's anger at Japan's position on the nuclear and missile issues, which is tougher than Washington's or Seoul's stance, as well as Tokyo's insistence on solving the abduction issue.

The North in 2015 had set its clocks 30 minutes behind South Korea and Japan, saying the measure was aimed at rooting out the legacy of Tokyo's 1910-45 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.

But the phrase is a diplomatic euphemism open to interpretation on both sides.

Maybe Kim is sincere in his declarations and avowed change of heart. It is at just these sort of moments that breakthroughs in seemingly intractable conflicts are often made.

Nam Kwang Engineering & Construction, which once ran a construction materials factory in the complex, jumped 15 percent. They watered a symbolic tree together, and toasted champagne. You know, I like Donald Trump. For the U.S. and South Korea, a reunified Korea would be a liberal, capitalist democracy. Also, Trump has threatened to walk out of his summit with Kim. In politics, trust and credibility are rare commodities - they are as sought after as precious stones.

The date April 27, 2018, will be remembered as a milestone in the history of the two Koreas. The outcome of these summits will have a significant bearing on North Korea's denuclearisation and the inter-Korean peace process.

Even if a concrete deal of some kind is struck, the test will be whether, once it is done, the US can project the confidence and stability needed for all parties to actually fulfil their commitments.
